We had an excellent Mother'sWe had an excellent Mother's Day dinner. All of our choices were delicious!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCasual sophisticationThere's an easy sort of elegance to this dining experience. The tastefully minimalist decor and wrap-around windows make the room. Feels like you're somewhere other than Cincinnati, but the venue gives a nod to the rich history and architectural heritage of this river town. Every View Cucina staff member was more than cordial; gracious and lovely to interact with. Food options were plentiful and we all enjoyed every bite; down to fine quality of rolls in the bread basket. Which was refilled at no charge.
We may have been lucky to dine here on a chilly spring day with no one on the deck. Completely unobstructed views.
I was a bit hesitant to try View Cucina in the company of an 86, 83 and 69-year-old. But the environment proved ideal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was disappointingAfter all the great reviews I thought the food would be a lot better. For the price, it was nothing special, just adequate. The desserts were terrible: a giant S'more was soggy and the bread pudding swam in 1/2 inch of butter. I would probably not go back. The service was very good, however.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI had friends coming in fromI had friends coming in from out of town and wanted to find an exceptional place for us to dine. Believe it or not I found View Cucina searching on the internet. I wanted a place with a view and View Cucina did not disappoint! Fantastic view, great food and my friends were very impressed! Thank you for a very memorable dining experience!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen the weather is a littleWhen the weather is a little warmer the outdoor dining would be a beautiful spot to dine. Service was excellent and the food was very good. All 5 of us ordered different entrees and all were very good.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe scallops and duck we hadThe scallops and duck we had were excellent! The service fun and enjoyable.

the service and ambiance was wonderful. Will return.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit to view, and it definite won't be our last. The food is absolutely delectable- from appetizer to dessert. Try the goat cheese dip- delicious! The bread pudding- divine! Our server was informative and friendly, keeping our water glasses full and our wine glasses fuller. We couldn't sit outside because they had just repainted, which only makes me more excited about our next visit- sitting on the outdoor patio with the stunning view of the city and the river. Whatever the occasion- romantic date, gathering with friends, or business social- you won't be disappointed!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to VIEW Cucina but it will not be our last. We didn't know what to expect, and we were pleasantly impressed with the food, the ambiance, and the service. Many items on the menu are commonly found at other restaurants, but here they were uniquely prepared and excellent. My Greek salad and meatballs with fettuccine were delicious - the prepared to order piping hot beignets for dessert were great.
I look forward to returning to the restaurant in warmer weather when we can sit on the patio.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMNot our first visit but ourNot our first visit but our first time with the new management and menu. Love the Piccolo Cru wine recently added to the wine list, big fruity California blend. The herb roasted chicken was delicious but too big, it was half a chicken. The chicken and chorizo special over cornbread was also delicious and a bit too large in size. We had the beignets for dessert. It came with 5 beignets which were sublime. Definitely sized for more than one person, probably best for 4-5 but we couldn't let the go to waste. Looking forward to our next visit.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Restaurant!

This was our first visit since the change in ownership and we were very happy to learn we'll still receive the same good food and service we have in the past.
